A reflection on Psalm 5:
Sometimes that’s the only thing we know how to say. Sometimes life and all it’s trauma, faith and all it’s doubt, relationships and all their pain, tears and all the forced and fake smiles means the only thing we can do, and even then, just barely, is breathe.
God, do you hear us? Do you feel this? Give heed to my sighing. Be as close as my very breath. Because sometimes you feel so very far away.
